Need a Web Designer or Social Media Manager?

If you need a new website for your business, a customized template for your blog, or a social media manager, I can help you look great online.

Writing is an complex skill that takes years to master. You need an expert to make sure your message stands out instead of being buried in incoherent sentences. I have ten years of experience ranging from technical writing to drafting human resources policies for small businesses. I can help you prepare annual reports, position papers, press briefings, and even product manuals.

Prices vary according to scope of project and length of engagement. Retainer fees are negotiable for ongoing writing needs. Contact Me for more information. For group rate information, see Premium Services below.

Whether you're writing a novel or a dissertation in engineering, a close editorial eye is crucial for communicating your ideas. I have extensive editorial and publication experience, as well as several years teaching writing in universities.

Prices vary depending on whether you want light editing of grammar and punctuation or extensive editing for structure and content. To get a free estimate, email the first 10 pages of your document to mail@loribrister.com, along with your editorial needs, and I will respond within 3 business days.

As a professional writer, I know how intimidating the blank page can be. Throughout my career, I have developed effective techniques for replacing that fear with inspiration. The hardest part about writing is getting started. The second hardest part is sticking with it. I can keep you motivated by providing a supportive environment to develop your ideas, setting regular progress goals, and giving feedback at every step along the way. I have helped dozens of colleagues, reserchers, and professionals from a wide range of fields successfully meet their goals and achieve the satisfaction of a finished draft.

The fees for coaching services vary according to the length of the project, how far along you are, and how often you'd like to meet, either in person (available in the DC area only), phone, Skype, chat, or email. However, the typical charge is $25-$50 per hour, not including editorial services.

In today's economy, an attractive, user-friendly website is essential. Your website is the first(and sometimes the only) thing that potential customers, clients, and employers will see, so your web design has to look great. I built and manage the website you're looking at now, and I can make sure your web design is beautiful and functional.

Prices start from $25 for a customized WordPress template, $100 for a one-page website, and $500 for a multi-page website. Prices may vary, hosting and domain charges not included in base prices. Details about affordable pricing plans are available.

Social media is by far the biggest PR and advertising tool available for today's businesses and organizations, but it shouldn't be just one more responsibility you have to handle. Let me take the stress out of social media. I can set up your accounts, customize your profiles, and even manage content, sending regular updates to your customers, Facebook friends, and Twitter or Instagram followers.

Already have a social media profile? Not a problem! I can update your status, live tweet your special events, and handle all of your social media PR. Now you can get back to running your business.

Quotes start from $20 per month, but may vary according to your needs. Free estimates are available.

If you need an experienced communications consultant to teach small classes, seminars, or workshops on effective writing techniques or web design for beginners, contact me for specific booking information.

I have also taught courses on travel writing, British literature, and Western art. If you need a personalized learning program or a group class for your book club or business team, a reasonable rate can be arranged.

If you have any questions or would like a free estimate, please contact me. I will work with you to develop a productive and efficient plan that best suits your needs.
